The Lone Tree Symphony Orchestra (LTSO) 2021-2022 season has been announced and tickets are now on sale at the Lone Tree Arts Center box office. LTSO Executive Director Cindy Kessinger said, “We are so excited to be back on stage with a hopefully sold-out season. We are celebrating our 22nd year.”
The season begins with Dvořák’s “New World Symphony” on October 1, musically referencing our country during the visiting composer’s time as Director of New York City’s National Conservatory of Music of America. Schubert’s Rosamunde Overture, selections from South Pacific and more will be performed.
The holiday season will feature “Together at Christmas” on December 4 and 5. Enjoy orchestral pieces such as Fantasia on Greensleeves by Vaughan Williams and First Noel by Gould and more. Soloists Margaret Ozaki Graves and Michael Hoffman will be joining LTSO to get audience members into the holiday spirit.
In the new year, the exciting program “Voila, the Viola” will take place March 4 with the principal violist of the Colorado Symphony, Basil Vendryes. In addition to this viola concert, Dvořák’s Slavonic Dance, Tchaikovsky’s Marche Slave, and Fiddler on the Roof selections and more will be performed.
Kessinger added, “Everyone loves Beethoven. ‘Bravo Beethoven’ on May 13 will be a concert not to be missed.” Celebrating the genius of Beethoven, the LTSO will perform Symphony No. 3, Eroica. The program will also include Brahms’ Tragic Overture, Op. 81 in D minor, Bartok’s Hungarian Sketches, and Bernstein’s The Magnificent Seven.
